Jeremiah 7:31-33 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

31 They have built the high places of Topheth[a] in Ben Hinnom Valley[b] in order to burn their sons and daughters in the fire, a thing I did not command; I never entertained the thought.[c]

32 “Therefore, look, the days are coming”—the Lord’s declaration—“when this place will no longer be called Topheth and Ben Hinnom Valley, but the Valley of Slaughter. Topheth will become a cemetery,[d] because there will be no other burial place. 33 The corpses of these people will become food for the birds of the sky and for the wild animals of the land, with no one to scare them away.
